Here I am again turning to my TuDiabetes page because I have a question for anyone who knows about OmniPod in Italy...
Even though I live in Boston, USA. I am now in Italy (Sicily, actually) and my question is: What can you tell me about getting a replacement for my OmniPod while we're in Italy?
Why? Because yesterday while we were in Cefalu, Sicily, my insulin bag was stollen practically from right under our noses. We had it with us sitting on the beach and I even did a test about 15 minutes before we left the beach, and then 15 more minutes later when we got back to the Hotel, my bag containing my OmniPod was gone. We've searched everywhere several times, and it's gone, gone, gone... so we're trying to get the company to FedEx us a replacement but (apparently) THE BIG problem with that is that even if they'll do it, something like that could be held up "for 7 to 10 days" waiting to get thru customs. So what I really want to know is what can I possibly do to get a replacement for my OmniPod (really, just the PDM - I have a bunch of OmniPods) while we're in Italy?
If anyone has an answer to these questions, I'd appreciate you posting here AND PLEASE ALSO copy that text to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
